Push the little rubber buttons at the bottom of the display, don't remember the sequence. Do you have any manuals on it in the coach? You can call atica and they might send it to you. Don't have it for download. Guess I should bring it home and scan it into the PC so I can provide copies for 20 dollars each????????

I have tried every possible combination of pushing and holding the buttons to no avail. I read elsewhere that the average mpg can't be set to 0 but that it constantly updates after 50 miles. I just don't want to be looking at an average over the last 30K miles.

I believe that the Avg Mpg is a lifetime average. I haven't been able to find a way to reset it either. I do know that since we bought our coach with 17000 miles on it, it started out with an average of 7.5 Mpg and gradually over the last 22000 miles it has increased to 8.0 Mpg. I don't know if that's an indication of a lighter foot, or just the engine breaking in. The Trip Mileage, both 1 and 2, can be reset to zero by pressing and holding the button on your right side (the "t" button) until it resets to zero. Other button combinations either 1) change the item being displayed (the "m" button), or 2) provide access to viewing engine parameters or limited programming functions. There is an Actia WRV Owner's Manual that has a limited description of these functions that may have come with your coach.

Thanks

Thanks everyone for the input. Guess I'll just calculate my mileage over a long trip the old fashioned way--pen, paper and a calculator.

Ok, I will bring home the manual, and scan it, then upon request, I will e-mail it to you. EM, I will send you a copy unless you don't need it. There should be a way to have the vendor give us exclusive use of this product for our coaches. If I think to call them I will see if we can get that permission.
